Why Do People “Fly Tip” in Bosnia and Herzegovina?
A continuing Eco issue for Bosnia and Herzegovina
Ever since I started documenting my life living in Bosnia and Herzegovina, I wanted to focus purely on the positive side of my life in this beautiful country.
My aim was (and still is) to attract people to come to this country and appreciate everything it has to offer.
It’s always good to be positive, but that’s something other than trying to focus on ONLY positive things, as that’s not the realty of life.
The nature in Bosnia and Herzegovina is nothing short of amazing and stunning. Mountains, forests, valleys, rivers, you name it and this country has it in spades. And the views? Out of this world.
We have a short walk we go on, that meanders down the valley next to where we live to the River Vrbas. It’s lovely, EXCEPT, there are places on the river bank where local people have “fly tipped”.
It is such unacceptable behaviour to be honest.
I have always wanted to take guests to see the river but its so embarrassing, just the thought is embarrassing, of seeing guests exposed to such a negative aspect of this country.
I suppose I shouldn’t get worked up about it, but I do.
The video above I recorded back in the dry summer of 2013.
Sadly things have gone from bad to worse.
How this gets solved I am not sure.
There are NGO’s with clean up projects, so hopefully, educating especially rural communities, will bear fruit in the not too distant future.
My fingers are so tightly crossed!
So Here’s a Question
How do I balance the reality of the negativities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, to showing the mega positives to you, in such a way that you’ll plan a visit here in the future"?
